Examples: Monitoring ECG by non-invasive methods, leading to no or minimal impairment in habituated animals. .Examples: Models with ECG recordings in the conscious dog after administration of test substances in non-toxic doses. Preterminal infarction models in the anaesthetised animal and euthanasia while under anaesthesia. Reperfusion models in the anaesthetised animal and euthanasia while under anaesthesia. Examples: Models with telemetric heart-rate measurements in the conscious animal by means of catheters/transmitters implanted in the abdominal cavity, without clinical insufficiency.

Models resulting in clinical insufficiency or interventions that may cause severe pain, extreme anxiety or death of the animal.

Examples: Testing of cardiac support devices. Induction of clinically manifest cardiac insufficiency, myocardial infarction or endocarditis. Models with telemetric blood-pressure measurements in the conscious animal by means of catheters/transmitters implanted in the abdominal cavity. Models with experimentally induced hypertension in the animal.

Examples: Oxygen measurement using pulse oximeter. Examples: Models with invasive arterial blood-pressure measurements by means of catheters previously inserted under anaesthesia in practically freely mobile animals, with the exception of abdominal arterial catheters. Models with non-invasive blood-pressure measurements in conscious mice, rats or using the cuff method.   Examples: Goldblatt rats with organ failure DOCA rats. Blood-pressure measurements in pulmonary vessels. MCAO (middle cerebral artery occlusion).
